talks with barack obama. we have more from washington. >> u.s. troop levels, u.s. financial aid, and political support for the afghan central government. those are some of the key issues dominating the agenda as hamid karzai continues his visit to washington. he has already met with leon panetta to talk specifically about the u.s. forces that would be necessary after the official end of the war of the end of 2014. the question will be what kind of responsibility will the troops have and what kind of legal protection will they have to carry out their mission. one thing the u.s. is keen to improve as the afghan security forces are capable of providing for national security across the country, but there are some critics who suggest this may be optimistic talk, given one out of the 23 decisions, just one is capable of carrying out of this sort of security without support and guidance from the u.s. or allied forces. the other 22 still need a lot of training. they still have problems with troops going a wall, aw -- going awol, and they still have problems with the taliban. the u.s. does be

washington. the obama administration has reportedly set its expectations low for passage of a new assault weapons ban in congress despite a change in national consciousness in the aftermath of last month's newtown shooting massacre. the new york times is reporting the white house has decided it will be exceedingly difficult for the ban to make it to president obama's desk, leading administration aides to develop other gun control rules that would draw bi-partisan support. the alternatives include universal background checks, more government research on gun violence. the white house is also reportedly considering a $50 million effort to fund the placement of hundreds of police officers and new surveillance equipment in public schools, a move that would resemble the national rifle association's call for armed guards in every school. news of the proposals comes as vice-president joe biden hosted gun industry representatives at the white house on thursday as part of his ongoing task force on u.s. gun violence. in his remarks, biden vowed to issue its recommendation to president obama
